Checking Our List #41: dB Logic Headphones {Review & Giveaway}

{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, Nickolay!}

Lately I've noticed that the majority of the music that I listen to seems to be sung by an animated character or, if they happen to be real, someone who wears bright clothes, a big grin and carries a guitar. But that's okay. The kids and I have fun cranking up the tunes and dancing around (or just bobbing along if we're in the car) and sometimes it's hard to say no to the "turn it UP, Mama!" requests when we're having so much fun.

However, as my daughters get older I know that it is inevitable that the days when listening to the music that Mom listens to is just going to be so uncool. Instead of singing along with me, they're going to be staring out the window in utter embarrassment or, just as likely, not hearing me anyway due to the music that they'll be playing on their own MP3 player.

That thought not only makes me dread the teenage years, but worries me about the possibility of hearing damage. With so many kids listening to MP3 players from a young age, I know I'm not the only parent that wants to help prevent anything from happening to my children's hearing (and my own)... which is exactly where dB Logic and their innovative Headphones and Earphones come in.

According to a recent article in the Journal of the American Medical Association, one in five teenagers today is already experiencing significant hearing loss - a number that's much too high. So, with a mission to provide consumers of all ages with the ultimate personal audio experience without fear of long-term damage to their hearing, dB Logic's products are the solution.

By manufacturing headphones and earphones based on Sound Pressure Level Limiting (SPL2) technology (while still keeping in mind style, superior sound and maximum comfort), it ensures great quality while preventing hearing loss. Basically, dB Logic uses SPL2 to place a tiny monitoring circuit between the MP3 player and the ear piece that regulates the volume and keeps it from going into the dangerous "too high" range.

But, as SPL2 doesn't change the actual sound wave, all you hear is a crisp, clear sound without any sort of distortion or warping. And, as it is all done without batteries, all you have to do is plug in these stylish headphones or earphones and rock on just like normal... knowing all the while that you're doing it safely.

When a pair of dB Logic Headphones in Quick Silver arrived, I was interested to check out what kind of sound they would provide in combination with their comfort and design.

Right away I thought that these were modern and attractive and, as soon as I picked them up, the flexible and swivel design was easy to hold and adjust. Checking out the padding, I was impressed with just how soft the earpieces are and how cushioned they feel once you put them on.

Plus, with just how easy it is to slide the headband to make these almost any size, they were easy to fit on everyone around here...

After retrieving my Headphones from the kids, I plugged them into my laptop to give them a try. What I found was that they sound great! The padding from the ear cups not only feels nice but muffles some of the outside noises, making it even easier to enjoy the clear sound of the music. No matter what genre I tried, I didn't feel as though I was compromising at all in order to hear the music while knowing that it was at a safe listening level no matter what.

I also really appreciated how compactly these dB Logic Headphones fold up, making them extremely portable and perfect for putting into a bag or backpack for any sort of traveling. Who doesn't want their tunes on the go?

For a battery-free, cool and stylish way to enjoy great sound, dB Logic Headphones and Earphones are a great gift idea for any music-lover on your list this holiday season or all year round. The overall great sound quality, appearance and, most importantly, ear protection would make them a hit for children, teens and adults alike.

Available soon in multiple fun color options and retailing for $29.99 to $39.99 dB Logic has something for everyone with their Headphones and Earphones. They are even coming out with a line of Sound Sheriff (headphones) just for kids with fun prints and patterns as well as a padded headband, so the whole family can really listen to music safely!

And, thanks to their generosity, one person will be able to listen to and enjoy their favorite music in this innovative and healthy way, because...

One lucky person will win their choice of Headphones from dB Logic!
